Went up about half or two-thirds of the way and stopped a "the Bowl" for a rest and lunch beautiful on Seward-!view side and gorgeous when we got to the bowl. The trail crossed some small snow fields including where the trail went over the stream and you're literally walking on thin ice.

It was tough especially the rocky part but the view was gorgeous.

This terrain was challenging, but with the view!

The first mile is nothing special, but once you reach the bowl behind Mt. Marathon itself you'll have great views of Seward and the Kenai Fjords.

Awesome hike. Took about four hours. Ive hiked it on cloudy & clear days, and I like the clouds better. It brought out the green in the bay's waters & didn't overexpose any of the pics. Done 4x & will do again

Enjoyed our first hike in Alaska! A little muddy for the first half, but perfect for the last half up to Race Point. Beautiful views and not too hard of a hike.
